The last few days have been exciting as we are getting the final touches put on our brand spanking new website! So here we are, ready to make the leap from Heather Forsythe Designs to (drumroll please…) Sixpence Press! Heather Forsythe Designs was never meant to be the name our design and printshop would go by. I just sort of fell into using that name as I painstakingly brainstormed for the perfect press name! So, how did we choose Sixpence Press? I pulled it from one of my favorite wedding day poems:
“Something old, something new
something borrowed, something blue,
and a silver sixpence for her shoe!”
This little rhyme dates back to Victorian times in England and is a perfect fit for me and my obsession for all things English. So hop on over to our new site and check us out!
“Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a color for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it.”
I’m looking forward to working this into my designs this year! I’m seeing peonies… hearts… arabesques… So excited!
And check out the Pantone Spring Palette. I’m loving the silver peony and silver cloud!
We just reworked our classic Oak Lane invitation and Save the Date for bride, Callie. Callie is getting married in the lowcountry in October and loved the design with it’s Live Oak and Spanish Moss, but wanted to keep with her palette of grey-greens, blues and warm browns. I just loved the smokey green-blues in this palette of colors! The invitation is designed with a burlap wrap and wax seal which would bring back in the acorn graphic from the Save the Date. The clean and simple Save the Date is designed to be flat printed on a smooth recycled stock. Keeping with the natural feel, the Save the Date’s envelope is a kraft brown euro-flap with address label.
